“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” Chapter 2

November 16th, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Another chapter in the World of Wizards starts to unfold the continuous evil that surrounds them all.  The fear the world they all know will break apart and endanger both the Magical as well as the Non-Magical will come to pass. Action needs to be taken to attempt to stop what their possible future entails. Read more…

“Instant Family” Fun and Heartfelt

Review by John Delia

Nicely acted with creative directing, but the bottom line is…its one man’s reality pressing for a need to spread the word. For the fantasy of it all however, the comedy gets high pitched, the mind has a chance to think and the heart gets a good massage. Do I recommend Instant Family? Absolutely, it’s brilliant!

Review by Ian Delia

The amazing and heart touching story “The Grinch” or known as “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” was and is a wonderful and timeless story written by Dr. Seuss. If you watch basically any family channel in the prime time of the year, Christmas, you may have seen the original story of the Grinch and there have been 2 movies of the classic Grinch. But it’s great to relive story with a heartwarming plot on the big screen with new voices and animation. Read more…

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” High Energy

Review by John Delia

If you have seen the American made trilogy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, then you will be familiar with the characters in the fourth release called The Girl in the Spider’s Web. The actors may be different than in the previous three, but the names and their descriptions are the same. For newbies of the stories, they all take place in Sweden and the plots reach out into other countries as the crime drama plays out. It’s like watching Bourne Ultimatum with Jason Bourne, but with a women in the lead role. If you like high energy movies than this quick paced film is your Swedish cup of Filmjolk. Read more…

“Christopher Robin” Now on Blu-ray

November 7th, 2018 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

Wonder if the hundred-acre wood were real and young Christopher Robin made it his playground. No animation or fuzzy drawings, but real life with cotton stuffed animals that Christopher uses to dream about in stores like Pooh Bear and his honey and Tigger and his springy tail. You know like when we were kids, and if a girl she placed dolls on her bed and had tea parties, and boys would use trains to make believe he’s taking a trip through a cardboard countryside. Well in the live action movie Christopher Robin, it becomes just that and it has as much heart as the animated cartoon that we as children loved and laughed. Now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD the movie can come to life in your own living room. Read more…

“The Happy Prince” an 1800’s Icon

Review by John Delia

Many of you know the name Oscar Wilde, especially for poetry and plays including “The Importance of Being Earnest” and “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. But, unless you paid attention in College Lit or are a connoisseur of the Irishman’s works and life it’s likely you missed the ordeal of his final years. With the release of The Happy Prince, this film should open a lot of dialogue about the man who lived in the glorious 1800’s. Read more…

“Suspiria” Dancing with Evil

October 31st, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Weird and disturbing the movie Suspiria takes you into the realm of evil. Although it could have been a good film for horror fans, the film lags to extremes and movies so slow you may nod off from the droning music and repetitious modern ballet. When you do finally get to the terror, for horror fans it’s a good presentation of typical gore and extreme evil violence. Not for the squeamish or fearful the film does achieve points of cruel depravity, pernicious nudity and bone snapping body parts. Bring a pillow, you’ll be there for a while. Read more…

“The Old Man & The Gun” Fascinating & Revealing

October 18th, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Fascinating and revealing the scriptwriters of The Old Man & the Gun take a chance on a true story, but it’s nothing more than a showcase rather than a compelling feature film. There have been quite a few films in the last decade that create vehicles offering audiences a chance to see a famous star in their twilight, light up the screen. While many have been used as support characters, this one serves as Robert Redford’s homage for an amazing contribution to the movie industry. Read more…
